    I'm Not A Great Mom.

    Monday, November 15 2010
    Allie comes across Sami with EJ, Jennifer has a disastrous meeting with Ben, and Rafe destroys Nicole's video evidence.


    In the loft, Rafe plans on getting the camera back from Nicole. He’ll make his move when she’s distracted with Sydney. Sami doesn’t like the idea of using Syd as a pawn. Rafe calls in a favor to Mike to get a program to stop the video from going viral and asks Mike to distract Marco for a while. He leaves and Sami lets Will know about what’s been going on. She thinks he’s entitled to be screwed up after all he has been through in life but is amazed he's wonderful and dependable. Will calls her a fighter but she worries Nicole will take Syd from her. Will tells her to trust Rafe and calls her a great mom. Sami scoffs at that. "I’m many things but I’m not a great mom." They hug and she tells him he has pretty low standards. They laugh and Will takes off for school.


    EJ thinks to himself in the mansion that desperate times call for desperate actions. He’s off to Switzerland. Lexi arrives and he gives her the first pound he ever earned and wants her to give it to Theo. He wanted to buy a Star Wars action figure with it but his step-father thought it was best to save it. Lexi wonders if this is EJ saying goodbye. He tells her no, he has just been reflective as of late. Lexi receives a page and has to dash but they agree to get together later. Once she has left, EJ says, "I lied. That was goodbye." He packs up and leaves.


    At the Kiriakis mansion, Nicole flashes to making a deal with Rafe and Sami. She fixes a martini and says as long as she has the video, she can bring Sami to her knees, which is where she belongs. She drinks to Ari for giving her the smoking gun. Rafe and Syd arrive, much to Nicole’s delight and Rafe needs to set up ground rules. She can't tell EJ about this, there's to be no surprise visits and no booze. Nicole agrees and holds Sydney happily. They play and Rafe admits Nicole’s really good with Sydney. He asks if there’s another reason she didn’t go to the police with the video. Rafe suggests she hates EJ as much as Sami. Rafe wants them to trust each other but Nicole finds this funny. Rafe starts eying her laptop. Nicole reminds him he was threatening to kill her an hour ago. Rafe smirks and says he’s actually pretty easygoing when he’s not protecting Sami. He flashes to meeting with Mike who gave him a thumb drive that’ll wipe out the hard drive and ensure if the user downloads anything else it too will be destroyed. Rafe fakes a call from the foyer and plugs in the thumb drive into her laptop and deletes her files.



    Jennifer and Bo sit at the pub where Jennifer admits Jack left her to follow a story. Bo thinks Jack’s a jerk and that goes along with being a guy. Jennifer is glad the kids are happy and she’s happy to be at home. Bo wonders if she’d give him another chance. Jennifer’s not sure. As much as she loves Jack, she no longer wants to be blindsided. She wonders if she was a shrew who drove him away and then asks Bo to keep this to himself. Jennifer says it was nice talking to him even though sometimes she thinks he’s a jerk too!



    Before Carly is ready to leave Statesville, she tells Hope that Bo’s not doing well. "How could he be? You’re in here." Hope knows he feels guilty but Carly insists they both know it’s more than that. Carly understands Hope’s feelings about the need to be in prison. They find it ironic that Carly’s the only person who does. She knows Bo still cares for her. "Why do you think he sent me here?" Bo’s worried about her and wants her to start fighting back. Hope’s glad Carly told her that. Carly’s happy to support Bo, who is a good man, unlike the past men she has been with. Carly suggests they appear to be friendly in case she has to return. Hope thinks it’s a good idea but suggests they don’t get too friendly. Those in the clink know about her situation. Carly leaves and Hope is pulled into the infirmary. Lee puts her to work and Hope asks after Lee’s background. Lee looks at the clock and takes off, ignoring Hope’s question. Jane arrives and Hope asks what her background is and about Lee’s. Jane says she went to college and admits she forgets what Lee’s background is. After she leaves, Hope wonders why Lee’s keeping her past a secret.



    EJ arrives at the loft in order to bury the hatchet. Sami doesn’t believe him. She turns away and he grabs her and chloroforms her. Allie walks up as EJ lays Sami on the sofa and screams.



    Jennifer arrives at the hospital and runs into Lexi. They catch up and Lexi says she hasn’t seen Maggie. She introduces her to Dr. Ben Walters and then leaves when she’s paged. Jennifer notices a "walkabout" bracelet on Ben’s wrist and is immediately annoyed. She thinks it’s laughable that a grown man would leave everyone in his life to go find himself. She leaves Ben stunned.



    Carly and Bo meet at the pub and discuss her visit with Hope. Bo leaves the table and Carly can see things aren’t over between him and Hope.



    Salem Spoilers For Tomorrow's Days Of Our Lives:

    Nicole warns Rafe, "You’ll never ever find what you’re looking for." He grins.

    Melanie tells Victor that if Maggie left without telling anybody then something’s really wrong.

    Vivian taunts Maggie. "Soon you won’t be able to remember your name."

    Hi all,

    I'm in shock - an Allie sighting! Yeah i've been waiting to see her for ages, the poor little girl is going to grow up feeling so neglected. I love the kids who play Johnny and Sydney but they've had plenty of stories i really want to see the focus shift to Allie for a while.

    I know others don't like seeing Sami 'corrupt' Will but i have to say i kind of like him not being a goody goody. I don't want him to go to far down the criminal road, but i do think that with Sami and Lucas as parents it would be odd for him not to be a bit of a schemer. I used to like it when Lucas and Sami were in cahoots, but then they made Lucas all high and mighty and always looking down at Sami like he was perfect and she wasn't good enough for him. I really love seeing Will stand up for his mom, telling her that she doesn't get to be the judge on whether or not she's a good mom, and that he and the others all love her, including Syd.

    I think it would be interesting to see Hope, Carly and Jennifer work together with this prison mystery but i don't really want to see Hope and Carly become best friends. I always find it weird when soap characters become friends with someone when that person does something like move into their home and slept with their husband, i don't want to see Hope and Carly fighting, but neither do they need to be super chummy.

    I really don't enjoy seeing Nicole this stuck on Syd, come on woman, i know Syd's a little cutie but you can have a great life stop obsessing over another's woman's child, it's starting to get a little creepy.

    I'm still wondering whether the EJ/Sami story is going to end in him kidnapping her and all the kids so they can be together. I don't want to see that, i don't mind EJ and Sami being a family in a year or two, but right now they really need to see and interact with other people and focus on other things and just being parents to their kids.

    Yes Nicole's sister's name was Taylor, and their half brother was Brandon Walker, Abe's older son

    Anyways have a super day

    What's up with Carly's hair? Is it much lighter, or am I imagining things? Nicole and EJ deserve each other - They seriously need to hook up - again...

    Posted by lovingDOOL at Monday, November 15 2010 07:21 AM

    So today is all about the Sami/EJ/Rafe/Nicole drama, again. I hope EJ manages to get the kids away from Sami.

    I will post more after I've watched this.

    I really do not want EJ and Sami to end up together, remember he was her rapist! I can not stand story lines that have women fall in love with their rapists...it is disgusting.
    Carly's hair is a lot lighter, but she should not be wearing PINK lipstick... makes her look like she is trying to be a teenager again! Horrible for her skin tone and looks ridiculous.
    I love that Jennifer is back, I hope she stays a while and would love to see Jack again as well. They are definately a power couple.
    If EJ gasses Sami and takes off with her and the kids what will happen to Syd, since she is not there?

    Posted by DOOLfann at Monday, November 15 2010 11:00 AM

    I love seeing Jennifer back, and I don't mind that Jack isn't with her I'm just glad that she is. Finally a character to root for, I hope the writers aren't going to make her bad. I don't mind her interaction with this new guy, she needs to have other things to do then minding other's businesses. I hope that she gets a story, and that Jack will return next year, because the actor is available and is open for a return. Well I will post about this episode later.

    Destroy EJ and Nicole while you destroy all the evidence of the proof I don't care what it takes I mean this and do it for me please I need this to happen

    Posted by soccer at Monday, November 15 2010 01:24 PM

    That proof will be destroyed today if Nicole sees that it is gone she will be arrested with EJ. I really mean this I am not telling any myths. I am really serious tell Bo that EJ and Nichole should be arrested right away I don't care what it takes I would do it anyway for how EJ and Nicole kidnapped Sami's daughter.

    Posted by Danimac at Monday, November 15 2010 02:04 PM

    Ok I need to vent a little here! I just read a spoiler that Jack will NOT be returning and Jen and the Doctor will be a new couple. ANOTHER super couple bites the dust on DOL. When they finished with John he was never the same John and left the show that way. Justin and Adrian, Bo and Hope, EJ and Sami were never allowed to be a happening couple after they tore apart the long awaited Lumi. Brady and Chloe. It just goes on and on. Writers: hear this...stop messing up all the super couples!!!!!!!! There is no love in the afternoon anymore. There IS however, lies and villains (too many of THOSE BTW!!!) Oh yeah and the original sociopathic couple Rafe and Sami. Maybe they could do a Criminal Minds episode together. Really!!!
    OK, I vented. I do not know if anyone else is feeling like I do but just sayin' writers that we need a little more love in the afternoon and a little less babyswap/kidnapping/don't know who your daddy is/lab changing/don't know where my baby went/want my kids but always leave them with Grannie/sarcophagus trapping/ loonies like what is on now.

    Actually EJ did not rape Sami. He gave her a choice and she accepted...not quite the same thing. On the other hand Sami is a rapist. She drugged and raped Austin against his will without his permission. I'm so sick of everyone in Salem constantly saying "poor Sami". Nothing against you Deejoy LOL

    Posted by The Engineer Mom at Monday, November 15 2010 03:34 PM

    I have to agree with all the posts today. I haven't seen this episode yet, but I am also frustrated that there is no variety of stories or characters; everything seems very gloomy these days. I am totally down for the villains and the dark side, but I also need balance.

    Twofedup, thank you for pointing that detail out about Sami actually choosing to sleep with EJ. I think most people forget that detail. When it comes to EJ, I feel like, although manipulated, Sami has always had a choice so to speak.

    Danimac, totally agree about the Rafe Sami psycho couple. What gives? There is going to be some deep dark psychological skeleton that is going to drop out of Rafe's closet in the near future (I hope). It is just a little too odd to me that he got all obsessed with Sami and has lost his morals. LAME!

    Based on what they have both done to each other, I can't even bother to try and defend Sami or EJ. I think EJ is a darn good actor (and so is Nicole) and I love the chemistry between he and Sami. So, I think they should be together as a villainous couple.

    I really cannot wait to see what hair brain scheme EJ has planned for Sami...muahhhhhh (that is my evil soap opera laugh!).

    Please get Maggie out of the darn sarcophagus already.

    Have a beautiful day Ladies (and gents if there are any...LOL)
